District 9 recreated as an 8-bit videogame

Never mind popcorn, you'll want some tasty prawns to accompany this excellent new CineFix creation.

The Dutton brothers have worked their magic on Neill Blomkamp's 2009 sci-fi classic District 9, recreating the epic tale as an 8-bit (with a little bit of 16-bit thrown in too) videogame.

As you'd expect for a film with alien weapons, exosuits and giant motherships, it lends itself rather well to an old school shoot-em-up extravaganza as you guide Wikus through District 9, with 'prawn' Christopher Johnson alongside him.

Buckle up for a hugely enjoyable three minutes.
